The price for a barrel of crude oil on the New York Mercantile Exchange gained
38 cents overnight to $95.52 per barrel Friday morning.
Prices recovered from Thursday's drop, which was prompted by a global sell-off in equity markets, a reaction to news the U.S. Federal Reserve could begin to wind down a stimulus program this year.
Reformulated blendstock gasoline, which lost more than 10 cents Thursday, also rebounded slightly, gaining 1.59 cents to $2.7934 a gallon.
Home heating oil gained 1.46 cents to $2.8876 a gallon.
Natural gas shed 0.4 cents to $3.873 per million British thermal units.
